    Hello:

    48 L jacket (weightlifter) -large arms (19-20 inch) -- long arms usually a 17.5 and 35 length shirt

    ---just did suit shirt inventory and jettisoned all white shirts (lil old) so will be replenishing.

    Plan to buy the interview suit at J Press or brooks Saturday--will get one white shirt there and tie to match

    but than when i get the new job I need to but another 5 white shirts I am thinking (have various colored and/or striped shirts like 5-6)

    so thpught son best shirts Prefer shirts in the 50-75$ range if possible --

    Is there a big difference between lets say a shirt from jos a Banks and brooks or Press? (will see Saturday)

    thoughts?

    Robert Talbott is a possibility. Brooks Brothers shirts traditionally offer extra room, though I am not acquainted with their newer lines.

    I've had the Brooks Brothers white non-iron (I think the number was 345, I may be wrong)...they are nice shirts, but you can save a few dollars by going with Enro's non-iron shirts. Personally, I prefer the Enro shirt - it feels just a little heavier.

    Whether you go with Enro or Brooks Brothers, the BB forum was correct - if they're non-iron, just throw them in the dryer, and pull them out - no iron needed.

    If you have a decent local shop, they should have the Enro's available in the $50-60 range. Always seemed to have ample room in the arms for me - I'm not a body builder, so YMMV.

    I had a bad experience (with the tailoring) on MTM suits in the past--- and read of a lot of problems from people on this board with shirts.

    I might get brave and give it a shot in the future. For the short term I will go off the rack.

    thanks!
